The Box Pleat Paper-bag short

Added Nov 26, 2010

Columbus, Ohio, ...






These shorts were made for part of an “Alice and Wonderland” themed collection for the 2nd annual “Highball Halloween” Fashion show in Columbus, OH. I used a high quality polyester taffeta, which yields for nice box pleats. I made a super long sash for the belt/bow. Shorts have an invisible zipper inserted in the side seam. This item is also avaliable for sale on Etsy and can be custom ordered.

    Great shorts! The type of pleat you used is an inverted double pleat, to be called a box pleat you have to have multiple pleats one inverted, one regular, one inverted,…ect.
